THE ADVENTURES OF SUPER MARGARET
Oddfellows Playhouse presents “The Adventures of Super Margaret”, the world premiere of a new comedy for young audiences by Adam Szymkowicz.
Adam Szymkowicz’s plays have been produced throughout the U.S., and in Canada, England, The Netherlands, New Zealand, Germany and Lithuania. Szymkowicz studied playwriting at Juilliard and Columbia. The New York Times has called his plays, “sweet," “fabulously weird and weirdly fabulous,” “weird but likable,” “hysterical,” “unabashedly silly but also shrewd,” and “touching." He runs a blog where he has interviewed more than 700 playwrights.
“When I was a kid I saw shows at Oddfellows that blew my mind. In my playwriting career many exciting things have happened, but having a show I wrote on the Oddfellows stage feels like winning the lottery,” said Szymkowicz, a Connecticut native.
“The Adventures of Super Margaret” features actors from Oddfellows Junior and Senior Rep Companies. The troupe of 20 includes youths ages 12-19 from Middletown and the region.
Ana Birnie, 12, who is performing in the show, said, “It’s very, very exciting that no one’s ever seen it before – and it’s nerve-wracking. No one’s ever seen it before so you don’t know what they’ll think!”
Director Spencer Bazzano describes the play as “a brilliantly written piece of modern text created for a young and enthusiastic generation. If the witty quips and hilarious scenarios don't keep you engaged, then the high energy and truthful storytelling of this young cast will! A fun time for all ages.”
